    I think he is a mix of Black Cooper and Cuckoo.

    Well I was thinking Golden Cuckoo but they should have better barring than that, so I think ve might be right.

    White shanks with feathers... Good sign he's a maran. I'm going with the suggestion of black copper / cuckoo cross. [​IMG]

    ordered eggs last year an I got a splash and one that is pictured an the rest were normal cuckoos some were dark. I keep this guy because I kind of took to him. I have a regular cuckoo marked roo. I really like the dark color eggs. I think that the person that I got them from was mixing them up.

    I dont think hes a BC/cuckoo mix.........he looks like a blue/cuckoo mix to me. His feathers look much more blue than black.
